, and also begs the question of what the administration is prepared to do with morsi in egypt. >> tougher one. morsi has seemingly backed down from his absolutist stance, but he is getting what he wants. and, you know, all this begs the question, you know, is morsi really just mubarak with a beard? and is the administration getting into bed with the guy they are going to regret getting into bed with later? that said, you know, the opposition is fractured, and these guys, the muslim brotherhood, have played a positive role in the last israeli-hamas war. so the administration is really flummoxed by this a little bit. >> certainly it's an issue that i think the administration has been spending a lot of time on, and will be in the second term. helene, we'll see you in a few minutes with the roundtable. jeffrey, thank you so much. >>> joining me now, assistant majority leader dick durbin of illinois, and california republican congressman kevin mccarthy. welcome to you both. i'll get to some of the foreign policy questions later, but i want to talk about what's been top of mind for both of you, and

that's who happen, a lot of begging and borrowing and bribery that go on to get big things done. if you were sitting in the oval office now, i know you spend time with president obama, what would you tell him are the lessons he should take from the movie on house of representatives he should conduct himself on a whole range of things over the next term? >> he's got to keep that connection closer with the public closer than it was in the first four years. lincoln had those characters coming into his office every morning. after a while people said you don't have time for these ordinary people. he said you're wrong, these are my public opinion baths. you get a sense of timing, a mastery of timing when you've got the sentiment of the country behind you. but the other lesson is not to be embarrassed about making deal. during the health care thing every deal got exposed and it looks like it's the terrible thing. it the end result that matter as long as nothing illegal happens in the meantime. >> you know, doris, you just referenced what for my money is one of the most powerful scenes in the m

as almost as many counter comments as supportive comments. so it begs the question, is twitter a way to kind of unite an army of supporters? >> absolutely. technology is changing the art of persuasion. what everybody -- look at history. look at history just a few weeks ago. this guy won the white house with technology. we talked about it here before. he used technology to get re-elected. he used it to get in the first time. the only difference that he's doing this time that he didn't do the first time is he is making sure he doesn't tone down the machine. now for the very first time we have this issue that he wants the american public to weigh in on and if you think about the demographic, the president of the united states can come into the living room, a voter, up to 30, say, in their comfort zone and talk to them one on one and make an issue out of the $2,000. in their comfort zone, not on the network news, daily newspaper but in a very personal way in a way that are resonates with that demographic. i think it's going to be very impactful. >> the numbers are phenomenal. the president has n

east. some new wrinkles that beg the question, is any resolution in sight for israel and the palestinians? >>> unsolved mystery. that huge powerball jackpot raised some unanswered questions beyond who won. >>> having their cupcake and eating it, too. big new twist in the hostess going out of business story. good morning, everyone. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. there is new intrigue in the fight over the fiscal cliff talks today. both sides have messages out this morning that seem to echo the same old position. this on the heels of president obama holding a campaign-style event in suburban philadelphia to sell his solution. he said if congress does not extend the bush tax cuts for the middle class, everyone's taxes will go up january 1st. >> i'm assuming that doesn't sound too good to you. that's sort of like the lump of coal you get for christmas. that's a scrooge christmas. >> meanwhile house speaker john boehner says the latest proposal from the white house would cripple the economy. the plan calls for a boo

in '52 where henry cabot lodge and hugh scott, they had to beg them to run. this could be the first time in history where the people had to go to the candidate the governor is saying. >> i think that's true, chris, and i agree with the governor. she's probably draftable. when she gets cajoled and guilt tripped by liberals and women and people who really believe -- >> why wouldn't she want to be president if it's offered to her? >> do you know why? because it's not being offered to her, and that's the one thing that i want -- that's the point i want to make the most strongly. i have to say, i had a very weird reaction to that video. i supported her in 2008. i hope she runs and if she runs, i expect to support her in 2016 although we don't know what the future will hold, but the most dangerous thing for hillary clinton is to believe what people are telling her about how she walks on water. we had an inevitable front-runner in 2007 in the democratic party, only she lost. and i would hate to see that happen again. but the fest shrift of that video and the adulation and the sense that it's ju
in the woodward piece. what do you make of him? >> a lot of great woodward stories, as many questions begged as there are answers like who recorded it, who thought it was in their interest to release the recording and what is mcfarland, a respected national security from republican administrations and a long-time fox analyst, what is her side of the story? if you listen to the audio, read the quotes, it doesn't sound like it's a total joke going on there. maybe there's confusion between roger and mcfarland but there are a lot of unanswered questions about it and has people looking at petraeus, as well as fox and asking about the various roles they had through the prism of this conversation. >> but at least according to these quotes there's nothing that the general said as he's quoted that is at all out of context with what he has always said publicly, he is not planning to have a political career right now. >> on that point it's consistent. some of the other things he said are racing some beltway eyebrows. >> and speaking of eyebrows, anna winter, one of the biggest contributors being mentio

about them, they do not have to go begging the politicians they may be investigating to please fund their investigations. their funding is totally independent of state lawmakers. so when they want to investigate state lawmakers, they are insulated from those lawmakers trying to shut them down by shutting down their funding. it's a smart system, right? it's a tough system, it's independent, it's aggressively nonpartisan. now it's not like wisconsin elections are perfect. they may have this tough, independent, aggressively nonpartisan structure at the state level, but they do have very partisan elected clerks at the county level who have to administer elections by county. and some of those county officials are more partisan and therefore maybe a little more suspect than others. but the overall structure of the state, the elections are not being run by one of these guys. they're not being run by a katherine harris or a john husted or got guessler there is no statewide elected official who is running the election and endorsing one of the candidates in that election that they are running

, over mental health as well, but it begs the question will this tragedy be the tipping point in the fight over gun control specifically. i want to bring in some friends of the show right now, ischwab moody mills of the center for american progress, david nakamura and matt welch, editor-in-chief for "reason" magazine. matt, i want to start with you, i've met your 4-year-old daughter, a delightful young lady and i know your politics more than most is a bit nuanced. your perspective not to over state it, your perspective is a bit unique generally. what's your take on a discussion right now? are we talking about the right things as it pertains to -- to this tragedy? >> you know, i think that there's a -- a belief and it's somewhat wrong that we don't have this discussion. i've heard a lot of people saying on twitter it's time that we finally have a discussion about guns in society and gun laws. we actually do have this discussion, not just with every one of these just awful, you know, mind-boggling tragedies, but in general. we've had two supreme court cases, major ones in the la
in g-o-d remains to be seen but it does beg the question of whether, as we attempt to understand and respond to the newtown tragedy, how do people of faith process the unthinkable? here with me, anthea butler, professor of religious studies, joe watkins, pastor of christ evangelical lutheran church in philadelphia, serene jones, president of union theological seminary and chris jenkins, the author of "how an atheist found common ground with the religious." you know, i want to go to reverend joe watkins first because i think this is the question that most commonly gets asked by people of faith after a tragedy like this. where was god? how do you answer that when your parishioners come to you and ask where was god. >> god lets the rain fall on everybody, on good people and people who aren't so good, and he loves us all. sometimes it may feel like we -- it may be hard for us to feel his love but i liken it to when i go up in an airplane, on a rainy day when you fly off somewhere and the clouds are looming, and it's raining, as soon as you get above those clouds, the sun is doing wha
of this does, i think, beg for a better labor enforcement mechanism. we were talking about personal perm attempts. the prelance of the economy how do you organize that part of the economy. increasingly companies are relying on subcontracting their work to other companies which makes it difficult to organize across that. i would say some of that requires better labor law enforcement that says you can't do these kinds of things. >> but that's not enough. you can't stop at enforcement. you have to think aupt of the box about what the laws should be and about what the organizing model should be. first of all we need to tie people's direct bread and butter issues to the union and to issues of the workplace. if you don't have a union we're deeper in poverty. if you're a part-time worker you can't schedule daycare so you organize people around daycare about their immediate issues and as a union you can still do that. as a worker center we organize people around a host of issues that are outside of their workplace issues. secondly, you know, you can bargain with the employer. you can bargain wit
